1971-May73, I was assigned to HMH-363 in Santa Ana, CA. Great aircraft! I was a crew chief for awhile in 73. Miss the air & the power. The views were incredible over the ocean & beaches of southern Ca. then. I am seeking the history of 363 before 1972. I'd like 2 be able 2 reaquaint with any or all that may be above ground still.
Jun71-Dec73, I was a lucky Red Lion too. I remember quite a few in S-1, supplies, and hydraulics (good old 6055's). My CO, Lt Col V M Lee is probably long gone, but he was a roll model.
